I would recommend not thinking about a "File Management System" and instead think about a "Photo organizing system".

 

Use the simplest possible folder structure, a parent folder with subfolders named by Capture Date. Put the photos into this structure and never move them (EXCEPTION: If you have to move them to a new disk or new computer, then you should move them). Spend the rest of your time organizing by adding keywords and other metadata to your photos. WHen you need to search for a photo, you can search by keyword and/or other metadata. You won't search by capture date, as in most cases you will not remember the capture date.
